It would be a file name to a plain text file or raw print file.
You can pipe output to lpr, too.
cat file.txt | lpr -P (printer name)
The contents of file.txt will print on your printer. If you cannot
print, then there is an issue with the print driver, connection, or
possibly the printer itself. Running "lpstat -t" will display your
available printers and the print queue, which will include error messages.
